The next regional meet is being held in Toronto on Sunday, Feb 3, 2017. This is a Central meet – meaning they will only let our Western regional skaters attend, if they have room.

Family Day meet – held in Burlington on Monday Feb. 20th. This is our club’s meet that we will be hosting. We encourage all of our skaters to participate. Since this meet is our only other major fundraiser, we also expect the parents of the skaters to help out as well. More information will be coming shortly regarding volunteer opportunities and donations for the silent auction.
Our Annual Christmas Party is quickly approaching, and we hope everyone can make it. All skaters from both clubs (HSSC and GHSSC) are invited, as well as their families. This will be a potluck event, so pls watch your email to sign up for a dish! Lunch will be served, games provided for the kids and of course, a chance to get to know your fellow skating families.
Details are as follows:
Where: Sherman Arena (upstairs), 388 First Rd E, Stoney Creek

The Christmas Cheer Wine Raffle will also take place during the party. Please be sure to bring your sold tickets and money to the party. Skater that sells the most tickets will win a prize!
We will follow the party with a mini meet, which is always fun for the skaters. It gives them a taste of racing and lets the parents get an idea of how skating meets are run. Any questions, pls contact Karen at email@example.com. Hope to see you there!
